The potential of road water harvesting for improved indigenous pasture production in arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs)

This report documents the potential of indigenous grass reseeding combined with road water harvesting methods for rehabilitating degraded grazing land and provide sufficient and qualitative yield of grass. Road water harvesting was practised by directing water from the road into trenches that were laid out over the entire field. The results indicate that rainwater harvesting through road surface runoffs increased soil moisture content and subsequently improved pastures biomass yields.
